Screening The Album: Let England Shake (12A)
Dir: Seamus Murphy 55 mins, 2011, UK Please note: this was screened in Feb 2012
In film normally the image comes first, followed by the music. Not so with this collaboration, where celebrated war reportage photographer Seamus Murphy created a short film to accompany each of the 12 tracks on PJ Harvey's Mercury Award-winning eighth album. Murphy travelled across England to record new material, combining it with his work from foreign war zones to create powerful, raw interpretations of Harvey's songs and a poignant picture of the role military conflict has had in England's past, present and future. Much more than mere music videos, the films take the songs to a new place while perfectly capturing Harvey's powerful message.
